As every year just after the holidays, the abstract deadline for the EGU General Assembly in Vienna (April 7-12, 2019) is approaching. This year, it is on Thursday, 10 January 2019, 13:00 Central European Time.
This year, it seems that there is a strong focus on Earthquake Tectonics and Crustral Deformation (TS5) with 11(!) sessions focusing on this topic:
- Paleoseismicity, active faulting, surface deformation, and the implications on seismic hazard assessment (Fault2SHA) (co-organized)
- Understanding fault growth and interaction over a range of spatial and temporal scales
- Integrated approaches to bridge Long-term Tectonics and Earthquake cycles: Observations, Experiments, and Models (co-organized)
- Earthquakes, active tectonics, and seismic hazard in regions of slow lithospheric deformation (co-organized)
- Crucial characteristics of earthquakes that generate tsunamis from geologic observations and numerical models (co-organized)
- Active Tectonics and Geodynamics of Anatolia
- Understanding large subduction earthquakes and tsunamigenesis by integrating geological and geophysical observations, laboratory results, and numerical modeling (co-organized)
- The Mechanics of Faulting from shallow to deep earthquakes: Interplay between multiple length scales. (co-organized)
- Earthquake foreshocks: identification, observation, modeling, and lessons to be learned (co-organized)
- Earthquake Source Processes: Recent Advances in Observation, Imaging, and Modeling (co-organized)
- Long-term evidence from past great earthquakes: critical observations and constraints for seismic hazard assessment (co-organized)
Each of them sounds exciting and worth contributing, so I am looking forward to a packed programm of earthquake tectonic – themed sessions!
However, if you cannot decide where to submit your abstract to, please consider our session on “Paleoseismicity, active faulting, surface deformation, and the implications on seismic hazard assessment” (TS5.1/GM4.5/NH4.16/SM3.10) at the following link:
